Wiring diagram for mini humbucker in the neck and SC in the bridge???

I ordered a SD Antiquity II mini humbucker for my latest Tele parts caster. What wiring scheme do you guys recommend for using a standard Tele control plate and switch (1 common volume and one common tone knob with a 3 or 4 way switch). The Seymour Duncan website has a diagram for standard hum buckers, and I assume mini would be the same. The SD diagram doesn't specify the pot values. What are you guys using for diagrams and pot values? I'm looking for good rock and blues tones. Thanks.

I run a DiMarzio Area Hot T bridge pickup and a Klein Mini-humbucker in the neck slot... 250k pots, 3-way switch, and it sounds great. 500k pots can be used with both of those pickups, but there's no shortage of clarity & high end with the 250k's for me.

Sounds good. Thanks for the reply.

I've got a Gibson mini (I think it has the same wiring as the Antiquity) in the neck of The Harlequaster with SD Little 59 at the bridge; I used 500k pots, both being buckers. I'm about to do some "fine adjustments" and will replace the tone pot with a push-pull for the Lil 59. This will give me single coil option at the bridge but I'll keep the 500k pots, unless anyone here advises me otherwise?
